@AnonymousThe only way to get the bar lifted is by making a call to customer services (not live chat) You will have to borrow a phone or use a landline. The number to call from abroad is in this link https://www.o2.co.uk/contactus
On contract the number is
|From abroad||+44 3448090202|
On PAYG the number is
|From abroad||+44 7860 980 202|

If this is due to a late payment then there is nothing you can do. The phone won't be reconnected until the payment clears.
This would also apply if outgoing calls were restricted until a payment had been cleared if the issue was because of an unusually large amount in excess of your normal monthly bill. O2 would have requested a lump payment to ensure you could meet your further costs.
All I can suggest is you use Skype to make the calls. It's cheaper over wifi and the other party doesn't need to have Skype as you can call landlines or mobiles if you add credit.
